Vintage Celine Scarf with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow
Custom made one-of-a-kind luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite vintage Celine fashion scarf in an exotic oriental inspired fan design.
The French designer brand was founded in 1945 by Céline Vipiana who remained a designer until as recently as 1997. Beginning as a luxury made-to-measure children's shoe business, it was recognisable by its red elephant logo. In the 1960s the brand moved into fashion, sportswear and leather goods such as loafers, gloves and bags, with the 'Luggage Phantom' being one of the iconic 'it bags' of today. The logo has changed with the times as well; from the success of the 60s ‘american sulky’ range - an open two-wheeled cart drawn by a horse used in harness racing - to the current minimalistic, widely spaced out lettering. Made of a beautiful fabric sumptuously soft to the touch with a visible decorative foulard design within the weave of the fabric itself, most visible when caught by the light. The fans are elegant and feminine and the sign such an unusual one that it would make a superb accessory to ones interior.
Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect.
A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric.
